Beautiful beach, cool water, relaxing and inspiring. I was able to journal and take amazing pictures and it was easy to hike with out exhaustion since the air remained cool and the water, rocks, flowers and sky provided such great material to artistically work with.

Not extra tidy but it was off season. No litter. No bothersome venders. Just a mile of white sand and a chilly swim!!

Perfect for a morning swim, not a wild landscape, but perfectly nice if you're in the area and are looking for somewhere quieter than Sanxenxo.

This beautiful beach is breathtaking. The water is so amazing it looks like it's gold flakes in it. The sans is white and really smooth. It also has a little restaurant which is nice. Notice that you only can pay cash.

Service was good. Lots of seafood but it also has meat options. They were very accommodating with kids. Excellent view of the ocean that was a plus! Me encantó!

Excellent beach in the area of Sanxenxo (2km from the village). Well maintained beach on a daily basics with lifewatch, one of the best sands you will ever find on earth (kind of desert sand). Blue waters you can see through and a bit chilly...More

Great beach, especially during the week - on weekends it can be a bit crowded. Clean, white sand. The bar at the beach is great and the people who run it are wonderful. Plenty of hammocks, chairs, umbrellas to rent, as well as paddle boats.

This is a beautiful beach which is maintained every day to look perfectly pristine with golden sand. It is perfect for a daily stroll or power walk...or just a relaxing sunbathe
